Callicoon Victorian, $119,000

54 upper main street callicoon ny

As if you need another reason to like Callicoon, but here’s one, anyway, in the form of an inexpensive 3 bed/1.5 bath hamlet house that was just recently put on the market. It appears to be in great condition, with lots of good stuff like wood floors, a pellet stove in the living room (speaking of the living room, is that shelving unit/entertainment center built in?), French doors, bay windows, and a sharp kitchen. It’s also been neatly landscaped with attractive plantings and stone retaining walls. Close to the Callicoon Creek, and walking distance to Callicoon, which is a wee charming hamlet, indeed. Floodsmart.gov gives this house a high-risk rating for flooding due to its proximity to the creek.

Catskill Farms Cottage in Glen Spey, $239,000

50 rowley road glen spey ny

Whenever we stumble across a Catskill Farms property on the market, we feel compelled to jump all over it. Builder Charles Petersheim’s designs always feel pitch-perfect with their surroundings, and this little cedar shake cottage, located 10 minutes from the Sullivan County hamlet of Glen Spey, is no different. Secluded on over 7 acres, the cottage’s exterior is homey and inviting, as is the inside, and although it’s small (805 square feet), nothing about it feels over-crowded. The current owner of the property has a blog describing her experiences transitioning from full-time city dweller to upstate weekend warrior. You’ll find it not at all shocking that we love that screened-in porch.

Six Months Later: Roscoe Victorian, $90,000


Six months ago, we posted about this Roscoe village beauty/cheapie that was $95,000. The price has since dropped $5,000, making it even more tempting. It doesn’t lack in curb appeal, and it looks like a promising bet for someone looking to buy for the first time or get a second home in the Catskills (Roscoe is in Sullivan County). Anglers, take note: Roscoe, also known as Trout Town, USA!,  is located where the Willowemoc Creek meets the Beaver Kill. Ah, if only the lot size was more substantial. But living out in seclusion in the Catskills on lots of land isn’t always everyone’s bag. There are definite advantages to living in a more populated place. Walking to stuff, having human contact, proximity to a major thoroughfare, etc. are important to some. And if you can snatch it up for less than $100,000, even better. Curious? Here’s the Roscoe town guide.

Five-Figure Friday: Wanaksink Lake Cottage, $90,000

17 first road rock hill ny

A five-figure lake house is a bit like a unicorn around these parts, but there’s usually one or two around Sullivan County. This one fits the bill nicely. It’s over 1,000 square feet located across the street from Wanaksink Lake in Rock Hill, it’s on a half-acre of land, could be a two-bedroom, the interior looks spacious with no glaring repair work, and the property includes a storage building. Living here gives you access to the lake clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and the lake itself, of course.
